What is Projective Method in Research

PROJECTIVE METHOD: This is the method of data gathering through doll play, picture interpretation or sentence completion, which can be used with both children and adults. It is used as a means to draw out the respondent’s inner feelings when a direct question is inappropriate or when the true purpose of the study cannot be revealed. These methods are open-ended and unstructured. The other method is to ask the respondent to describe other persons’ motives or attitude, which actually reflects the attitude of the respondent itself.
